            Besides... what would be wrong with just taking existing mascots like Grimace and making them cuter and more animated. Why go this route? It makes little sense from a brand perspective, IMHO.

            They did and the end result was the creepiness was that final nail in that coffin... ClaskY cSupo?! and McDonald's do NOT mix...

              Maybe I'll reverse my stance. Maybe McDonald's has always been terrible at making mascots.



              The Hamburglar originally looked, well, not unlike homemade Halloween costumes of early 20th century. His latest incarnation looks meant to appeal to Rugrats fans, which I'll concede would make sense in 1999, even if I think it's weird.



              There's just no excuse for the first version of Grimace. Although, the source URL in that Hamburglar pic reveals that McDonaldland was "inspired" by HR Pufnstuf. Now things are getting clearer.



              Birdie, actually looks OK in her original concept. It's the last one that seem strangely twisted. And the penultimate rendering is overboard on the "cute" attempt.

                  Been forever since I've been here. I saw the pic. I didn't even know about the change until my mother told me. I personally find it creepy.

                      That is not right with God



                      McDonald’s said in a statement Tuesday Happy’s main mission will be to promote healthy kid meals.

                      “Happy ... will encourage kids to enjoy fruits, vegetables, low-fat dairy and wholesome beverages such as water or juice ,” the statement reads.

                      Conspiracy theory time...this guy

                      says to eat right. Kids are scared away from healthy food. McDonald's posts poor sales of fruit and vegetables and water, says the market doesn't want it, and soft drinks and low grade meat numbers increase.
                      Compared to the usual "Hamburger, soft drink and fries, All Regular Size"!!

                        It is the 35th Anniversary of the Happy Meal, so perhaps they will release a Teenie Beanie Baby promotion in July.

                        Teenie Beanies were the craze in 1997, and now Frozen Merchandise, since March 2014. Mcd's had departed from Disney in 2006 or 2007.

                          McDonald's sales are doing fine. I'm so sick of companies catering to a select few. Do they really think people's opinion of them is going to change? People know their food is unhealthy and go there for the unhealthy taste. McDonald is a treat for kids and there is nothing wrong with it being less than healthy. It's the parents fault if they're feeding it to them several times a week.

                          There are studies out there that show that fat and cholesterol may not be as bad as once thought. Exercise and limiting simple sugars seems to be more important. If kids are moving around as they should, McDonald's twice a week in its current form shouldn't matter.

                          Like the changes to school lunches, if the food doesn't taste good kids will simple just not eat it. Do you think most kids will say "hey mom lets go to Micky-D's. I feel like eating healthy today"?

                              Probably an accident, I'll clean it up.

                              I think Carl's Jr. has a pretty subdued mascot, I don't remember the star doing much.
